I have a 1977 Eldorado. I have to replace the ignition and door lock cylinders. I realize I have to remove the steering wheel for the ignition cylinder. When i remvoe the pad and horn wire & the telescoping screws... how do I remove the rest? I have a Chilton's manual, but don't seem to be able to remove the "plate assembly" for the telescoping mechanism. I've attached some images of what I'm referring to.
I know that this post is years old, but I found it while searching for the same thing myself on my '88 cadillac seville (It has the exact same telescopic ring thingy). The way to remove it I found (after trying to pull it off only to bend it up pretty bad), is just to grasp it with a pair of pliers and unscrew it counter-clockwise.
Maybe this'll be helpful to someone else who comes along in 4 or 5 years, lol.
